Just scribbles for this weeks ChOW.. didn't draw much this week.. No idea what I did...or how the week went.
erm. I am trying to get somewhere with these line drawings.. *shrug*.. hehe..
steps for the ermm ChOW "death's horse"
funny enough I didn't think this would be anywhere near complete as I have now.. kinda thought I would be done with just a sketch.. but yeah...
well, I actually looked at some horse pics.. "research"... pbase.com had some nice refs.. I tried sketching out an idea.. but meh..
here are some I tried...
I just decided to go with this sketch.. I sort of had the idea I wanted a human under a horse skull embeded at the front.. you can see the faint initial super quick scribble in the back...
Then using my large collection of custom brushes.... I roughed out the background..how it was going to sit and where I guess.
I made this brush quite recently, for the horn.. I think the tree and shrub ones I downloaded from somewhere, can't remember where now tho...
so I drew out the horn..
Rendering.. in B&W.. nothing special..
legs too short.. and some more refining..
refining again.. now I notice that my horse is stuffed.. it was looking more like a deer/cow/dingo... time for some ref.. Oh and decided to add the name tags.. something about death made me realise I needed to make more reference to death..
I asked few people for help on making this thing more horse.. emily, bunny, tom.. tex, michele.. john.. ermm yeah.. most said the leg was too short.. Emily was kind enough to pinpoint lot of areas, like slouching back.. and so on.. with that I sort of made it half horse... lowered the ground.. and refined more..
After this it was as simple as putting a colour layer on top...
refined a little more
and with some adjustment stuff tom taught me. and some more little adjustments here and there..
it actually took about 8 hours all up.. or something close to that number.. reasonably quick I think.
hey man. greattt digital work you've got in here. you're lines are stunning, really delicate deliberate stuff. i definitely need to try my hand at digital work more, something i've been telling myself forever but never actually taken the time to do. thanks for the inspiration.
